Russell Westbrook makes headlines even when he isn't playing. Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

Rockets guard Russell Westbrook sat out Saturday’s game against the New Orleans Pelicans, with Houston employing some load management for the front end of a back-to-back.

That meant Westbrook, ever the fashion icon, had to pick an outfit to wear on the sideline. He went with traditional dress on the top and shorts on the bottom — a choice that was roasted by the Rockets’ broadcast team.

What do you expect for a team that uses a red carpet for player arrivals? Westbrook, a fashion aficionado, is pushing the envelope — or something like it. The man has done it before and will do it again.
